My first Crit ‘race’ and it was hard.
Ill for the first 6 weeks of the year, some not-nice family issues and some horrible post-viral fatigue. Back on the bike now, and a new job (working at home!) so things looking up.
New FleaBay self-build bike taking shape in the garage too.
5500 miles/8771 km, and 50,500 meters climbing.
One of the Zappi’s regulars, Tim Jones, has created a fantastic Turbo or roller video from the local Tuesday night chain gang. You can download the Chain of Pain from here-
- it’s pretty awesome for an hour’s hardcore spinning, and shows off the flatter eastern Oxfordshire lanes rather well! The evening sun on the way home is like your own little SAD therapy lamp too.
Works well with Ipads running something like AcePlayer.
Here we go again. Seems a repeat of last year but with more kilos to lose! Anyway, am back on the Turbo with some good rides to watch, plus joined a spinning class for 12 weeks – lets hope this sorts me out! No real plans as yet apart from the White Horse Challenge, but lets see what the year brings. I have /really/ missed the bike.
